  • Dyslexia and Reading Intervention Mission

    In Portland Public Schools, addressing and supporting dyslexia and reading difficulties is a key district priority. We believe that Literacy is a Civil Right! This site serves as a landing place for all resources that we utilize to ensure all students have their reading needs met, grades K-12. Here you will find content and resources for families and community members, students, and educators. Please see our team contact information or select "more help" if we can support you better in understanding how we are systemically shifting and prioritizing learning to read in PPS.

  • Humanities Vision: Stronger Together: Global Stewardship, Literacy, and Multilingualism

    The Humanities Vision is the empowerment of professional educators through partnership in continuous learning and the development and refinement of instructional practices, curriculum, and assessment to support every student in attaining the promise of the PPS Graduate Portrait.
